Once again Olga – our russian friend – has done her research in finding a tour guide. She has found him through a russian travel forum with lots of recommendations. We go to talk with the guide at 4 pm and even though I had thought Magpie and I would be doing a one day hike, I decide on the 3 day hike. So… at 4:30pm it is decided, we three are doing the 3 day hike and will be leaving in 10 hrs. In retrospect it does not leave Andres (our guide) much time to make all the arrangements including all the food.
